Album Notes
"Daphne has the most enchanting, mesmerizing voice..."
These are the words of Ted Sohier of WQED-fm, Pittsburgh.

Daphne is a smokey voiced alto singing the tradition of the great chanteuses of the 1930's. Moonlighting from her opera career, she has firmly planted her feet in the fertile ground of great ballads of Piaf and Leonard Cohen.
This album was produced and recorded by Grammy winner Jay Dudt, and it is a love letter to France, the cabaret tradition and the feelings in all of us. Daphne is classic, but with a twist...her distinct color and sound are her own. Each song is newly imagined, in the old style but with twists and turns by the guitar, banjo, accordion, cello and bass.
Joan of Arc is a vocal painting of love and soul.

Daphne Alderson has toured throughout the United States, Italy and throughout Central and South America.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote, “A haunting voice...beautifully rendered love songs,” (Love Café). Ms. Alderson’s work encompasses theater and film, opera, oratorio, and chamber music. The Piaf Songbook, a collection of Leonard Cohen ballads and chansons penned for the great Edith Piaf, premiered at Heinz Chapel and tours in the 2013-2015 season. Concerts for the Pittsburgh Symphony’s recent Paris Festival, L’Amour La Vie, were hailed: “Not to be missed,” (Mark Kanny, Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

In the past year, she toured South America and Central America with guitarist, John Marcinizyn. Her recent collaboration with pianist Norma Weintraub Meyer has produced a series on concerts in memory of Anne Frank (Cohen, Mahler, Poulenc and Monnot). These concerts tour through 2015 in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh Opera’s critically acclaimed production of Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelite (Mere Jeanne de L’Enfant Jesus), marked a return to opera. Inhabiting the world of contemporary opera to date, roles include: Agnes the Digger (Fantastic Mr. Fox), Abby Borden in Lizbeth, Miss Baggott in Britten’s The Little Sweep, Tripaldi in Quantum Theatre’s Ainadamar, Opera Theatre of Pittsburgh’s A Little Night Music (Madame Armfeldt) and the world premiere of Todd Duncan’s Night of the Living Dead playing Helen Cooper, the ill-fated wife and mother (Microscopic Opera). She has appeared with Chatham Baroque, Bricolage Theatre, Central City Opera and IonSound. Other roles include Purcell’s Sorceress, Puccini’s Zia Principessa, Rossini’s L’Italiana, Hansel, and as Desiree in A Little Night Music with Wheeling Symphony Orchestra.

A native of Flint, Michigan, her mother is an accomplished music teacher. Her father was a hard working door to door salesman of Kirby vacuum cleaners. After four years of touring with the Duquesne University Tamburitzans, she continued studies for a career in opera, which led to studies in Europe and throughout the United States. However, the great voice teacher Dodi Protero encouraged her to turn in another direction, the art of New York Cabaret. Two of her cabaret reviews, Songs That Oscar Taught Me and American in Girl, Paris WW II toured through the Mid-Atlantic states. Joan of Arc, a collection of French chansons and Leonard Cohen ballads is set to release this February 2015.
